    Hello Monica Kenny,

    I enjoyed listening to the podcast and hearing what you had to say about global climate change. I have a personal love of bees and as most entomologists will agree, bee populations are shrinking all over the world. How do you think global warming and bee die-offs are related? If you want to see examples of people who are not contributing to climate change as much as the rest of us, I would suggest doing some field work where I once lived in the Midwest. Certain traditionalist groups there like the Amish, do not use vehicles and have a low carbon footprint. I would also travel to the Gulf Coast, places like Louisiana are being greatly affected by the fossil fuel industry and their fondness for environmental destruction.

    Sincerely,
    Kathy Kenny
